Have a HP m7050e, new hard disc, XP media center, w/ PNY graphics card 6600(I think...) - works excellent now that I've loaded driver for the graphics card... except there's a square as described that comes up first time any software is run. Square also picks up characters and repeats them up and down screen while working. How do I get rid of it?
Thanks

A screenshot would be useful.

Here's a shot of the middle 3 or 4" of screen, note the "proces: duplicated vertically... if you're running Google earth for instance, it picks up part of the image and repeats it. Starts out as a single square always, then duplicates itself vertically and sometimes blinks. 'thanks!

I am wondering if you did what I did, load a fresh copy of the OS without first loading the HP disc. That will cause you grief. The HP disc contains proprietary system drivers you need to load that first then upgrade, this issue applies to many of the name brands out there.

Honesty & Integrity Above All!
